The 3-0-75 actually started as a five year plan for 3 finals, zero debt, and 75k members. Somehow the media have morphed it into 3 Premierships.

It’s just another attempt to have something to say we failed at, when in actual fact, we did it so easily, that it became irrelevant.

Now we’re going to smash the 3 Premierships in 10 years as well. God they must hate us.

3 premierships by 2020 was in the plan, but it wasn't one of the 3 headline goals.

It was probably the one that was most ridiculed. I would have been happy with making finals occasionally

yeah I think it was 3 final appearances which in the updated plan became 3 premierships.
It was an outrageous ambition when you think about it.

If you said today we will win 3 flags by 2030 I reckon it would be a bold call.

it was outrageous when first released so we have in affect smashed it - and the good thing is we haven’t finished given the age of our squad

Here is the PRE thread on the plan. You can see 3 Premierships by 2020 is already mentioned back then, but it's seperate to 3 finals by 2014, one of which needs to be top 4

I had a copy of the plan but I can't find it now.

You were so right and I was so wrong Bullarto, Brisbane played their grand final against us. Brisbane didn't give a yelp all night, none of that pressure or physical stuff at all, pathetic. Happy to be playing Geelong.

I thought this was our best result but it's always hard not to see winners as playing better than they did.

I feel like we have the edge in key areas, particularly speed and hardness and I think they will find scoring against us a real challenge.

As much as it isn't a popular opinion on this forum I feel like our two biggest hurdles to overcome are that they have a very good coach and a very good player who can produce a game that carries them a long way. If we neutralise those two factors then it is our flag.

We've got an extra day off, however they've had 2 pretty low intensity games in a row. I think we'll maul them.
